Even if you or your favorite young person is unfamiliar with the American classic UNCLE REMUS, you'll be sure to love this version of his fables. Updated comically and charmingly by author and storyteller Julius Lester, LAST TALES belongs in every story lover's collection. Lester brings down-home old-school set-on-the-porch-by-the-cracker-barrel-in-Alabammy storytelling back to life, updated cleverly with modern references. Lester croons, yelps, and uses funky dialect to bring Brer Rabbit, Fox, Wolf, Bear, and the rest to life. Modern cartoons owe a lot to Uncle Remus. Don't miss him this time 'round, y'all! D.J.B.
